The Q-Step Centre in the Department of Sociology at Manchester Metropolitan University is currently recruiting highly motivated graduates to its MSc Applied Quantitative Methods starting in September 2022. Students studying on this MSc will be ready to pursue a career involving quantitative research skills within a diverse range of organisations. Students will also be prepared for doctoral study, which requires advanced skills on quantitative methods recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and other research councils. There is the option to study this course in one year full time, two years part time or two years full time with a placement year. It is not necessary for applicants to have experience in statistical analysis, however, a good grounding in research methodology would be an advantage.
The course focuses on the development and application of key quantitative methods and analytical techniques. It focuses on the use of quantitative methods within real world contexts and a key aim is to develop graduates' career-ready skills in this field. Students will have the opportunity to do their dissertation in collaboration with projects being carried out with the department’s research centres and their international research partners. Students will also be exposed to a variety of different perspectives and views within the discipline through lectures, seminars, talks and workshops delivered or co-delivered by international experts. Visit the Q-Step website for more information about our partners and projects.
This course also offers a unique opportunity to develop a specialism in key research fields; depending on the individual programme of study, students will either graduate with:
+ MSc Applied Quantitative Methods
+ MSc Applied Quantitative Methods (Impact Evaluation)
+ MSc Applied Quantitative Methods (Big Data Analytics)
+ MSc Applied Quantitative Methods (Longitudinal Data Modelling)
+ MSc Applied Quantitative Methods (Participatory and Creative Research)
All these specialisms can be taken with the addition of a placement year.
